It's certainly nothing that grand.
It's intended scope was confined to accepting connections, decoding requests 
and handing them off to arbitrary request handlers which is where all that 
higher level stuff would come into play.

I just had a look at Network.HTTP, looks like there have been some recent 
changes to allow server-side uses.
Perhaps that could be a home for parts of it, though the two approaches seem a 
bit different.
